Just when you thought Tesla and Jaguar were going to have it easy with their respective all-electric Model X and I-Pace models, Mercedes-Benz have made their entrance to the era of electromobility with their brand new Mercedes-Benz EQC 400 4MATIC – and they’re not here to mess around.
The EQC is one of a whopping ten all-electric models that Mercedes-Benz is expected to launch before the year 2025; clearly a sign of the German manufacturer’s dedication to their vision of the future.
Equipped with a sizeable 80kWh battery pack, the EQC achieved a claimed range of 249 miles on the new WLTP cycle. For a 2425kg behemoth of an SUV that isn’t a bad figure at all, but it’s worth mentioning it falls behind both the I-Pace and the Model X for range, which both feature larger battery capacities. In real life, you can probably expect around 200 miles of real-world driving, which is decent without being ground-breaking.
